Re: Space drywall and trim

Darn, I wish you would have got back to me quicker. I already ripped it down to the studs. Thanks!

Space drywall and trim

Hello -
I have the trim cut but it's too short at the bottom so I see a gap between the trim and drywall. Do I have to add a little sliver of drywall or any other ideas?

Re: Window trim - better way?

OK, and if there's a gap make it between the trim and wall right? Otherwise the only way is to cut the strips on an angle or cut to same length and plane? Cause I think even there if I plane the top strip at a corner or cut on angles so once side is thinner, it might not line up with the edge of the...

Window trim - better way?

I've been working on all my windows and have received some great help already here. My issue is I feel like I'm doing it the hard way. So, my replacement windows are recessed from the frame, and the drywall is usually always uneven. You'll see in the pic the window is recessed with a gap and the dry...

Removing old backsplash tile. Do you usually try to plaster over or just pull the drywall out and add new?

Re: Trouble with uneven window trim

I scribed the wood. Being an angle cut on a small piece of wood, is that a table saw type of thing?

Trouble with uneven window trim

Hoping for some ideas. I have a replacement window in, but it has a gap between the old frame and the new window, so I was adding some small pieces of wood in the gap. Problem, is the window is a little uneven and there is a head expander pushing out the wood. Here are some pics. First shows the win...

Re: Help Hanging Interior Door

Thanks for the response. Yes, I watched your video. Problem for me, is based on the level everything seems to be straight. There is some drywall hanging over in some errors so I think it looks not level on the head. I was thinking of sending you picks of the level but that seems silly. I'll try the ...

Help Hanging Interior Door

So, got he door up. Checked the level on the jamb and it's all straight as far as I can tell. I can post pics of that too if it helps, but the door is still a bit off. Not sure what will help get it square. The hinge side is tighter at the top and bottom. The other side is also tighter at top with m...

Re: Cheapest/best value option for improving old kitchen cabinets

I thought about getting new doors and just repainting, but how do you paint the box? My cabinets seem to have some paper that tears off.

Best tool for the cut

I have this little strip of wood 1/2 x 3/4 and I want to shave off only a little bit. Maybe 1/8 or 1/4. What is the best tool. Table saw?

Re: Replacement door jamb measurements

I didn't install it yet. Do you think I should wait the 10-15 days to get a door with a 4 1/2 inch jamb, or you think that 4 9/16 will be fine? I just didn't want to do a bunch of extra work if I didn't have to. I have purchased 4 9/16 before but it sticks out over 1/4 inch and the trim isn't flush ...

Re: Replacement door jamb measurements

Seems like that would be easy to screw up. What about adding a board behind the trim so that way I don't have to cut the jamb at all?

Re: Casing a pocket window replacement

Thanks, others have said to add a stop or little strip of wood. It will be a very small piece I'd have to cut. Does this offer any benefit or it's mostly just aesthetic, right?

Replacement door jamb measurements

I think I've read when buying a replacement door, you want a jamb that is the length of your wall + 1/8. So our wall is 2x4 + 3/8 drywall = 4 1/4. So I should get a jamb that is 3/8 wide but this seems unusual size. Our current jamb is 4 1/2. What is the correct jamb with when 3/8 drywall is used

I was looking for a video on your channel for a pocket replacement. So, my new window sits in the existing window frame. I'm not sure on where to put the casing. There's the old window frame, the new replacement window jamb and a little space between them. Am I supposed to add the casing to the old ...
